This is the pre-packaged Debian version of the Netatalk protocol suite.
To find out more about netatalk, visit http://netatalk.sourceforge.net/

This package was originally put together by Klee Dienes <klee@debian.org> and
was later maintained by late Joel 'espy' Klecker and David Huggins-Daines
<dhd@debian.org>. It was repackaged by its current maintainer Sebastian Rittau
<srittau@debian.org>.

Notes about OpenSSL
===================

OpenSSL support is currently disabled, because of licensing issues: The Free
Software Foundation and Debian consider the GNU General Public License (GPL)
under which Netatalk is licensed to be incompatible with the OpenSSL license.

Until a final solution is found you can either rebuild the package with the
command 'DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS=ssl debuild' (or similarly with whatever build
command you prefer) or try fetching unofficial(!) precompiled binary packages
from http://debian.jones.dk/ . One of the following lines added to
/etc/apt/sources.list may or may not work (please do not use the official
bugtracking system for errors with them):

deb http://debian.jones.dk/ woody misc
deb http://debian.jones.dk/ sarge misc
deb http://debian.jones.dk/ sid misc

MacOS X Specific Notes
======================

There were problems reported with MacOS X clients and DDP connection.
The symptom of is the lack of the server name in the chooser of MacOS X
clients. To work around this problem, you have to insert the server's
hostname and IP addresses into the file /etc/hosts. Supposing the server
is called foo.bar.com and the IP addresses are 192.168.1.1 and 192.168.55.23
this will look like this:

192.168.1.1      foo.bar.com foo
102.168.55.23    foo.bar.com foo

Upgrading Problems
==================

This version of Netatalk switches to Berkeley DB 4.2. During the development
process of Debian 3.1 (sarge) earlier versions of BDB (3.0 and 4.0) were used.
As Netatalk does not automatically update its database, you may experience
problems like those described in bug #200373: no files showing up in your
folders. This problem should not concern you if you are upgrading from Debian
3.0 (woody).

If you have such problems, you may try to upgrade the database manually by
running the following commands (please set APPLE_DIR to the path to your
shared files):

  For upgrading from Netatalk 1.6.2-1 or below (you need the packages
  libdb3-util and db4.1-util installed):

    for db in `find $APPLE_DIR -name ".AppleDB/*.db"`; do \
      db3_dump -f $db.data $db; \
      mv $db $db.old; \
      db4.0_load -f $db.data $db; \
    done

  For upgrading from Netatalk 1.6.2-2 or up (you need the packages
  libdb4.0-util and db4.1-util installed):

    for db in `find $APPLE_DIR -name ".AppleDB/*.db"`; do \
      db3_dump -f $db.data $db; \
      mv $db $db.old; \
      db4.0_load -f $db.data $db; \
    done

If this does not work, you can just delete the database files, but please note
that this will destroy all stored meta information about these files!
